Go from Zero to Hero! Beginner to PADI Divemaster program in Bali.

Why should I go from Zero to Hero?

Are you ready to make a change? Looking for a new challenge? Want to make lifelong friends and have the most exciting 8 weeks of your life? Then sign up for our acclaimed fast-track Zero to Hero beginner to Divemaster program! No previous scuba diving experience required!

During your incredible 8 week program you’ll see marine life you never knew existed and marine species like turtles and manta rays that most people only ever dream of. You’ll work with our experienced team of Divemasters and Instructors who’ll teach you all the secrets of the trade. As well as getting the PADI Divemaster course itself you’ll dive some of the best sites in Bali, including the USS the Liberty shipwreck at Tulamben, and Manta Point at Nusa Penida.

You’ll be based in beautiful Sanur where the beach is only ever a few minutes away, the people are friendly and the food is fantastic. You can choose to immerse yourself in Balinese culture (as well as the ocean) or you can relax at the end of the day with a beer at the bar!

At the end of your 8 weeks you will leave us as a professional PADI Divemaster with at least 60 logged dives in the ocean. You will be ready to embrace a new career, new lifestyle and you will feel an incredible sense of achievement. If this is your dream then go ahead and live it! Make friends, change your life, achieve your dreams and be the best!

What Does the Program Cover?

You will begin your internship program by taking the PADI Open Water Course – this is the first level of diver and you’ll start by learning in the pool before making your first 4 ocean dives (up to 18 meters). Once you have passed your PADI Open Water you’ll move on to take the PADI Advanced Course which will develop your skills, increase your knowledge and certify you to dive to 30 meters! The next step is to start thinking about other divers so you’ll take the PADI Rescue Diver program and EFR (Emergency First Response Medic Course).

To begin the PADI Divemaster course you need to have logged 40 dives so you’ll also be spending a lot of time going out on trips with our own Bali Scuba PADI Divemasters and Instructors learning what they do, helping our guests and making some incredible dives!

A PADI Divemaster can also assist Instructors during PADI training courses so when you start your Divemaster course you’ll also be able to assist with courses in our pool and out on ocean dives. You’ll learn the skills and techniques needed to safely look after certified and non-certified divers, you’ll be challenged on a daily basis in real-life situations – it takes hard work but it also involves a LOT of fun and you’ll meet people from all over the world!
